    • J.J. Hoover: Non-tendered by Arizona
      By RotoWire Staff

      The Diamondbacks declined to tender Hoover a 2018 contract, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports. Hoover will hit the free agent market after spending the 2017 season in Arizona. In 52 outings, he posted a 3.92 ERA and 1.77 WHIP while holding a 54:26 K:BB in 41.1 innings of relief work. The right-hander spent a little time in the minors this past year, but should be able to find a home in a major-league bullpen for the upcoming season.

    • Hoover walked the lone batter he faced in the Diamondbacks' 7-2 loss to the Giants on Sunday. Hoover rejoined the Diamondbacks when rosters expanded Sept. 1, and manager Torey Lovullo has regularly leaned on the right-hander, mainly as a specialist against same-handed hitting. The 30-year-old has already made eight appearances in September, and though he didn't get the job done Sunday, he's still tossed 3.1 scoreless innings over that span. Look for Hoover to continue seeing work as part of the bridge to closer Fernando Rodney.

    • Diamondbacks' J.J. Hoover: Recalled from Reno
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hoover was recalled by the Diamondbacks on Friday. Hoover rejoins Arizona during the team's first wave of September call-ups after spending the last two weeks in Reno. The right-hander has been a regular sight in the Diamondbacks' bullpen this season, tossing 33.2 innings of relief work while compiling a 4.28 ERA.

    • Diamondbacks' J.J. Hoover: Sent down Saturday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hoover was optioned to Triple-A Reno following Saturday's game, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports. Hoover tossed 2.2 innings (50 pitches) Saturday and would have been unavailable for a couple days, so the Diamondbacks decided to swap him out for a fresh arm ahead of Sunday's bullpen game. Look for Hoover to return in September and serve in a mop-up role.

    • Diamondbacks' J.J. Hoover: Recalled from Triple-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hoover was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Monday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports. With David Peralta landing on the paternity list, Hoover was summoned back to the big club to offer bullpen depth. The 30-year-old owns a 4.82 ERA and 2.07 WHIP through 28 major-league innings this season, so he probably won't see anything other than lower-leverage situations. He'll likely head back to the minors once Peralta returns.
